Paper artist Josefina Hernandez explores patterns found within the National Building Museum and the illustrative history of A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

Josefina Hernández is a New York based artist and illustrator born in Bogotá, Colombia. Her art practice consists of paper cut works that are meticulously carved with an x-acto knife from a single sheet of paper. Largely inspired by nature’s sinuous and organic forms, Josefina explores the relationship between us and the spaces we inhabit. In her work, she seeks to convey both the spiritual and material realities of human existence juxtaposing architectural elements with the natural world.
